Can anyone tell me where I can find a piece of cork to use in the Ramsey Cylinder and Coins Routine. I have a magnetic stack on its way from T.L and have recieved the actual cylinder from the ambitious card but I cannot find anywhere to get the cork. I feel a bit stupid asking but have tried everywhere and no luck at all.

Thanks for anyone that can help

You can ask a bar for some used cork (it is the lid for wine, etc)..... and then you can slice it as big as you want

hope this help

They come in wine bottles and were a common item in places like the little grocery store in which John Ramsay spent much of his time. Others have used other markers. Ross Bertram used a die. Someone else uses a lifesaver. Another person uses a Penney.

Have fun

Jonathan is right. The downside, though, today many of the cheaper wines come with a wax/plastic cork or a cork that is really a cork-like material wrapped in wax.

My suggestion, find as many bottles of expensive wine as you can and then spend an evening emptying each one. That's how I got my cork collection. Hey, I need backup corks!

If after drinking all that wine you still cant find a cork: Go to a restaraunt supply or store that specializes in selling to chefs/cooks. They usually sell corks in bags of 4 or 5.

Craig, when I think about it, I try to remember to toss in a few pieces of cork with each cylinder. Sometimes I forget. Go to a nearby pub and ask for a wine cork. They probably toss out dozens of them per week. You might make a good contact for some work while you're there. You never know.

If nothing else, I could mail you some. Let me know.

All the DVD's I seem to get have "demo" versions of this routine...but none with instruction. Any suggestions on learning this interesting and effective gem?

Hi, Boo

You can learn the original routine from Andrew Galloway DVD The Magic of John Ramsay
It's 2 volume DVD. Full of classic. Thimbles manipulation, Coin to Hat, and many more

It's very good DVD. Then you can modify the routine to suit ur performance

Cheers,
Andre

John Carney has his version of Ramsey's routine published in Carneycopia. I believe it's also taught on the Carney on Ramsey:Lessons on Misdirection dvd. Can't comment on the dvd as I don't own it but the book discription is very detailed.

What props are required to perform this routine? I have Dan Watkin's Coin Man Walking and he performs cylinder and coins on the DVD but no explanation. I think the use of a Ramsay stack was already mentioned. Are there other gimmicks needed as well? I have a ] but that's the extent of my coin gaff collection.

Thanks.

You'll need a leather cylinder. Actually Frank Starsini makes beautiful leather cylinders. I purchased one from him sometime back. Mr Starsini's site is http://www.theambitiouscard.com. He carries very cool stuff you can't get anywhere else. I got my Ramsay stack from Todd Lassen. They're fun props to work with. Dan Watkins does a wonderful routine. John Carney has a book called Carneycopia. It has a super cylinder and coins routine. I kind of looked at both then came up with my own routine. Done well it looks like a Duck on a pond. Real calm on top, but paddling like crazy underneath.

I just ordered a Starsini Cylinder and I'm psyched after getting Carney on Ramsay. Todd is making these new, attractive and highly functional Ramsay magnetic Ramsay stacks. It's always fun working with nice props.

Now I just need a nice wand...
